Happy Easter weekend, my friends! I hope you have a lovely cosy time planned with your family and friends, full of chocolate and togetherness and fantastic roast dinners. I’ve started my Easter weekend off with a little chocolate…and a lot of green juice to balance things out! Today, I’ve got another roundup of wonderful blogs to share with you! There are some about healthy living, some about travel, others about all things ‘lifestyle’, and others about a little of everything! I’m certain you’ll find some new favourite blogs below. Happy reading, and a happier long Easter weekend!

She’s All Smiles
It’s been so lovely getting to know Brittany’s blog over the past month, and have been dipping in to see what’s new on She’s All Smiles every few days! Brittany’s blog, as she says in her ‘About’ page, is about bringing her readers inspiration for living a happy, healthy life. Her posts cover everything from food and fashion, to general wellbeing and the challenges of being a modern professional woman. I love how enthusiastic Brittany is in all of her posts, and how passionate she so clearly is about all she shares via She’s All Smiles. Oh, and you must go and read the post she shared from her recent trip down to Florida- the food looks like total American diner classics, and that sunset at the end made me long for a holiday!
Favourite post of the past month? A trip to Seaside FL.

Silverspoon London
Angie’s blog is a gem, through and through! Silverspoon London is all about the finer things in life- luxury international travel, London’s greatest hotels, restaurants, and experiences, and fine dining both abroad and at home. This month, Angie’s shared a round up of the eight best luxury hotels in Thailand (a must-read for anyone honeymoon shopping, ahead of this year’s upcoming wedding season!), reviewed the finest looking seafood Cornwall has to offer at Jamie Oliver and Rick Stein’s restaurants, and had a divine afternoon tea experience at the Mandarin Oriental hotel in London. Angie’s posts are always so insightful and full of helpful information, and its become my favourite site to turn to when I’m looking for ideas for special occasion treats!

The What Now Blog
The What Now Blog, as you know, has been a recommended read of mine for many many months now. I just love the way Louise writes her posts, with their focus on achieving a clearer, more focused mind, a greater sense of wellbeing and contentment, and a sense of balance too. This month, Louise has shared posts about gaining focus during a break from work through 10 minutes of meditition, creating a healthy workspace (I loved this post, and most definitely need to utilise the tips at home!), and about her experiences of attending an intensive two day leadership course. If you ever find yourself feeling stuck in your own head, and have the horrible sensation of never being quite able to switch off, I’m just certain you’ll find something on Louise’s blog that’ll help!
Favourite post of the past month? 3 Quick Ways to Create a Healthier Workspace.

Around the World in 80 Pairs of Shoes
Kelly’s blog is such a lovely one, and always such a pleasure to read! Around the World in 80 Pairs of Shoes is primarily about travel, the number one love of Kelly’s life! Its other focus? Why, the second love of her life, of course…shoes! In the past few weeks, Kelly has been on adventures to Seville (her photos, or ‘shoefies’!, of the beautiful tiles are a sight to be seen!), to Suffolk (the wobbly buildings are so charming), and shared photos from a Tiki Tour she experienced in her home country of New Zealand! I love how natural all of Kelly’s travel posts are, and that her posts always seem to be written simply from the heart. It’s just such a lovely blog to follow, and I’m sure you’re going to enjoy reading it!
Favourite post of the past month? Tiki Tour New Zealand: The Manukau Heads Lighthouse a Awhitu Peninsula

The Dubai Diaries
Rachel’s blog is a totally new one to me this month, and I’m so enjoying getting to know it! The Dubai  Diaries is about Rachel’s life as a flight attendant, and her travels all over the world! As you might have guessed, based on Rachel’s blog’s title, she’s based in Dubai but spends her time travelling internationally with her airline. Over the past few weeks, Rachel’s shared posts from her stay in Dusseldorf, her visit to Boston (which looked fantastic!), given us a few of her top travel tips, and shared photos from her best friend’s visit out to see her in beautiful Dubai! I love how Rachel’s blog gives real insight into a lifestyle so different from my own, and how exciting and adventurous it all seems! For anyone with a serious case of wanderlust, The Dubai Diaries will be the blog for you!

Loved by Laura
Laura’s blog has been one of my favourite discoveries of the past few months, since its been linked here in my sidebar! It’s got such an effortlessly charming vibe to it, and Laura herself just seems so lovely! Loved by Laura is a lifestyle blog, and features posts about a wonderfully wide range of topics. In March, Laura’s shared posts about her new go-to Spring ensemble (that cape! I’m in love!), her time at London fashion week, her experiences attending a Caribbean cooking class with the iconic Levi Roots, and about her new hair care secret for ultra hydrated hair! Each of Laura’s posts is so well written and engaging, and I find myself nipping over to her site time and again to catch up with her recent goings-on. You’re going to love it!

Another month, another round up of so many lovely blogs! I just loved putting this month’s selection together- there are so many of my old favourite reads in there, along with a few new gems you’re going to just love! Have a little read through the description of each blog in turn, click across via the links, and don’t forget to add your favourites to Bloglovin’! Happy reading, my friends…

Rhyme & Ribbons
I’ve read Amanda’s lovely blog for the longest time now! There’s something effortlessly charming about Rhyme & Ribbons- I think it’s the way Amanda manages to include something of her fun personality in every last post she shares. And speaking of the posts on Rhyme & Ribbons, let me tell you what’s been going on month! Earlier in February saw Amanda heading to Pizza Express to review their new menu offerings- a total contrast to the offbeat supper club meal she ate at The Little Yellow Door pop up in Notting Hill this week! Alongside all this delicious food, there’ve been lists of happy things, a post about going back to basics in the wardrobe department, and some photos of beautiful Dulwich that made me want to move in a heartbeat! What more could you ask for, in a blog?
Favourite post of the past month? London | Dulwich Village.

Silverspoon London
This month, Silverspoon London has been all about food and drink, which has made me very happy indeed! Angie’s been busy trialling and reviewing so many wonderful dining experiences, you’ll be hard pressed to know which to add to your ‘must visit’ list next! There’s been a Vietnamese Valentine’s Day meal at House of Ho that looked completely divine, an elegant French feast at Sketch, and, most envy-inducing, a tour of some of the most famous champagne houses in Champagne, France! I love how thoroughly Angie covers every restaurant, destination, or hotel she visits, and how passionate she is about fine dining and luxury travel. In short, her blog is just an all-round brilliant one!
Favourite post of the past month? Valentine’s Day at sketch Lecture Room & Library.

The What Now Blog
Louise’s blog is always the one I turn to when I’m in need of a little thinking-space and inspiration. There’s something special about Louise’s writing and the way she puts together her posts- they’re always so well researched and informed, and I reckon anyone would be hard pressed to read them and not feel a little boost of positivity! On The What Now Blog, Louise shares interviews with fascinating women, ‘how to’ posts (her latest, on avoiding the afternoon slump, is brilliant!), and a fun series called ‘Making Time For’ in which she focuses on getting the most out of her time, and encourages her readers to do the same. Her posts read like talking with a friend, and I just love them. One to start reading right away!

A Bookish Baker
Helen’s blog has been a new one to me this month, and I’m so, SO glad I’ve had the chance to add it to my reading list! A Bookish Baker combines two of the greatest loves of my life- baking and the outdoors, with books thrown in for good measure! On Helen’s blog, you’ll find delicious looking recipes (this month’s potato cake recipe is high on my ‘to make’ list right now!), posts about Helen’s brood of chickens and ducks (I’m green with envy!), and a beautiful series called ‘the seasons outside my back door’. I just LOVE each and every one of Helen’s posts- for their simplicity, for how beautiful her writing and photographs are, and for how elegantly she brings together her passions and combines them in her posts. This one’s is a real treasure, and you’re going to love it!
Favourite post of the past month? The Seasons Outside My Back Door: Week 4 January 2016

The Courtney Diaries
I’ve so enjoyed following along with Courtney’s adventures on the other side of the Atlantic via her blog, this month! The Courtney Diaries is, as I’m sure you might have guessed, an online diary made up of all Courtney’s adventures and day to day goings on and the loves of her life! This month, Courtney’s shared posts about her Valentine’s Day in NYC, about creating an inspiring workspace, and, most importantly, a recipe for bacon mac and cheese that looks completely heavenly! Seriously, the best. Courtney’s posts all have such a lovely, friendly energy to them, and are so engaging to read. It’s exactly the sort of uplifting, happy lifestyle blog I find myself drawn back to time and again, I’m sure you’ll just love it too :)
Favourite post of the past month? The Best Bacon Mac & Cheese.

Our French Oasis
Susan’s blog has been another new discovery for me this month, and I couldn’t love it any more if I tried! Our French Oasis is, as you might’ve been able to guess, a blog that centres around life in France. Susan lives in an old village in the French countryside with her husband, five children, and a whole menagerie of animals, and writes that her aim is to pass on to her children the love of the simple way of life she and her husband enjoyed when they both were young. On her blog, you’ll find posts about the family’s chickens and dogs (my owning chickens obsession is at an all time high!), photos and stories from their village, and snapshots of the beautiful local area and all it has to offer. Our French Oasis truly is the dreamiest blog, and I know you’ll love it as much as I do!
Favourite post of the past month? French Hens and Scrambled Eggs.

Here we are, the final round up post of the year! I always think that the days between Christmas and New Year are such a great time to get cosy, and catch up on a whole lot of reading. And if you’re anything like me, reading these days means not books, but blogs! I’ve got a selection of such wonderful blogs below, you’ll be hard pressed to know which to read first. So, go and grab yourself a handful of leftover chocolates from the selection box, make a cup of tea, and get ready to add to your Bloglovin’ feed. And I hope you had a wonderful Christmas!

Miranda’s Notebook
I’ve been a fan of Miranda’s blog for such a long time now, so it’s pleasure to have her featured here on Cider with Rosie this month! Miranda describes her blog as being a way of inspiring people to feel confident in seeking their own style- and isn’t that just such a fantastic mission statement for a blog? On her site, Miranda shares posts that range from restaurant reviews, round ups from day trips and adventures, tutorials, and recipe ideas! This month, I especially loved Miranda’s tips for creating the perfect chessboard (including a wedge of honeycomb, inspired!), and have been inspired by her super comprehensive gift guide too. You’ll just love Miranda’s Notebook, I know it!

Silverspoon London
With Angie’s coverage of her adventures in St Lucia drawing to close towards the beginning of December, the rest of this month has been decidedly food and cocktail themed over on Silverspoon London! I’ve said before that Angie’s blog is something of a one-stop-shop when it comes to great restaurant recommendations, and that couldn’t be more true at right now. In December, Angie’s dined at the new M Raw restaurant in Victoria, shared her thoughts on the Hawksmoor, and had a sushi feast at Roka! If you’re looking for recommendations for restaurants to visit, and places to travel to in 2016, you need look no further than Silverspoon London!
Favourite post of the past month? A Family Feast at the Hawksmoor, Knightsbridge.

The Courtney Diaries
It’s been so lovely to connect with Courtney via her blog over the past few weeks. She blogs from the States, and I love getting to stay up to date with her travels and adventures from the other side of the Atlantic via her fun posts! Courtney’s a huge fan of travelling, and over the past few weeks has been sharing posts from her travels in Hawaii. Posts so beautiful, might I add, that I’m now officially adding Hawaii to my ‘must travel to!’ bucket list! Alongside travel posts, Courtney shares recipes, ‘life lately’ catch up posts, restaurant reviews, and monthly favourite posts too. If effortlessly charming lifestyle blogs with a focus on travel and adventures are your cup of tea, then you’ll just love The Courtney Diaries!
Favourite post of the past month? Outrigger Canoeing & Sea Turtles.

Loved by Laura
Laura’s blog is such a lovely, personal one. It’s got that quality of feeling like a diary written truly from the heart- it’s as though Laura writes with each and every one of her readers in mind! Loved by Laura features a range of posts, including ‘life lately’ style posts, product reviews, coverage of blogging events, and the occasional recipe too! Speaking of which, at the end of last month Laura shared a recipe for Salted Caramel Chocolatinis, which are basically a concoction made from toffees, vodka, and irish cream, and chocolate. Now, I know Christmas might be over but Dry January hasn’t yet begun, so it’s probably about time you click through and follow Laura’s recipe for heaven in a martini glass!
Favourite post of the past month? Salted Caramel Chocolatini | A Christmas Cocktail.

A Little Lusciousness
Rosie’s blog has been a favourite read of mine for a long, long time now, and I’m always so happy to share her fabulousness here on my site! A Little Lusciousness is a food blog, and on her site Rosie shares recipes, restaurant reviews, and details of her pop-up restaurant dates. This month, Rosie’s given us her thoughts on Dirty Bones in Kensington and pop-up Cuisson in Waterloo, as well as shared a recipe for leftover turkey that might just save the day post-Christmas! I love how knowledgeably and passionately Rosie writes about food, and find myself turning to her blog time and again when looking for culinary inspiration. You’re going to love it!

Namaste from Ananya
I’ve followed along with Ana’s blog for a good few months now, and just love dropping by to read her latest posts. There’s something peaceful about Ana’s blog, that I think comes from her beautiful writing itself. It’s poetic and emotive and so very beautiful, and I just love it! This month, Ana’s shared postcards from a trip to India, written about how ordinary people can affect change, and shared a few of the little things that have made her happiest too. I just love how Ana’s personality comes shining through all the she shares on her site, and how that makes it so wonderfully unique. I can’t recommend it highly enough, truly!

Jasmin Charlotte
Jasmin is originally from New Zealand and lives in London, and on her lovely blog she shares stories, updates, and photos of her life in the city! She describes her blog as being about ‘adventure, tech, and tea’- an awesome combination, don’t you think? This month, Jasmin’s shared a review of Dinerama (a must read for anyone fond of delicious, finger-licking street food!), put together a round up of her world adventures to date, and shared posts from the city that stole my heart last year- Edinburgh! I’ve especially loved seeing Jasmin’s photos of Edinburgh, in all its charcoal grey glory! Jasmin Charlotte is just such a wonderful all round read, and I’m certain you’ll love it!
Favourite post of the past month? JC Travels: Exploring Edinburgh!

Silverspoon London
It’s been another fabulous month following along with Silverspoon London, and living vicariously through her adventures! Angie and her husband have been in Saint Lucia this month, exploring all that the island has to offer. And having seen Angie’s photos of the Jade Mountain hotel, I feel pretty certain that Saint Lucia has a *lot* to offer! You must go over and read Angie’s review of the hotel- it’s set on the mountain side and the rooms are open to the view, with no fourth wall. Magical! Silverspoon London is a one-stop shop for luxury hotel, travel and dining reviews- the best for anyone planning a special treat, holiday, or perhaps even a honeymoon!
Favourite post of the past month? A Celestial Stay at Jade Mountain, St Lucia.

Katie Snyder
Katie is a mega-dedicated blogger and YouTuber, who somehow manages to produce videos for her YouTube channel and posts for her blog on an all but daily basis! Anyone else wondering if she’s some kind of magician, because I for one am! Katie’s blog is lifestyle focused, and on it she shares everything from outfit posts and tutorials, to products reviews and updates on her fitness and wellbeing journey! I love seeing the snippets Katie shares of her life in beautiful Hawaii, and love following along with her charming update posts and videos. For anyone looking to get stuck in to a lovely lifestyle blog, Katie’s is for you!

Quintessentially Me
It’s so great to have the lovely Quintessentially Me back here on my blog this month. It’s always such a lovely read! Ashleigh grew up in South Africa but now lives in London, and documents her goings on via her blog. Quintessentially Me has an effortless ‘diary’ feel to it, and features a lovely variety of posts. This month, Ashleigh’s shared a recipe for healthy nutty banana brownies, talked a little about her hair care routine, and shared a story about her lifelong love for red wellies that was completely adorable. It’s exactly the sort of lifestyle blog that makes charming daily reading, and would make a wonderful addition to your reading list.
Favourite post of the past month? Guilt-free nutty chocolate & banana brownies.

The Sussex Girl
It’s been so lovely getting to know Beckie’s blog this month! The Sussex Girl was new to me in November, and is all about Beckie’s life living in Southsea! Beckie works for a charity by day and is a Navy reservist by night (pretty awesome, hey?!), and describes herself as being a lover of stationery, homewares, gin, and sparkly shoes! On The Sussex Girl, you’ll find posts covering everything from simple recipes and film reviews, to weekly roundups and days spent in the countryside! All of Beckie’s posts are so uplifting and well written, and it’s exactly the sort of blog I find myself drawn to time and again.

Wander to Wonder
I’ve been so happy to have Miho’s beautiful blog back in my sidebar this month, and to catch up on all her latest posts. They really are so lovely! Wander to Winder is a lifestyle blog, and on it Miho shares posts about her life in London, her travels, the places she eats, and so much more besides! This month, Miho’s posted about her adventures in New York (SO jealous!), put together a ’30 before 30′ list, and shared photos from the birthday lunch of dreams at The Ledbury! All of Miho photos are beautiful, her writing is just as lovely, and I’m certain you’ll just love her blog through and through!

I’ve fallen in love with Katie Cakes this month, and am *so* excited to be introducing you all to it here today! Katie Cakes is, you guessed it, a baking blog. And I’ll tell you, every single one of Katie’s recipes looks so delicious, I’ve been bookmarking them left right and centre! This month, Katie’s shared recipes for mini Christmas cakes (at the top of my ‘to bake’ list!), apple and blackberry crumble (always a winner, right?), and some divine looking pumpkin cookies made with coconut oil! Katie’s photos and food styling are so beautiful and so very tempting, you’ll be hard pressed deciding what to cook first!
Favourite post of the past month? Fig & Pistachio Bean Tin Christmas Cakes.

Stamp Please
And last but by no means least, we have the beautiful Camille’s blog, Stamp Please! It’s been such a pleasure to get to know Stamp Please over the past month, and to read back through Camille’s archive of posts. She’s got this wonderful way of putting together posts that’s so simple and effortless, and makes it all too easy to dip into her blog on a regular basis! This month, Camille’s been sharing photos of her travels in Canada and has been giving me a serious urge to book flights over there right away! Oh, and you must go and check our Camille’s snaps of fall in the States- it looks so very beautiful, it kind of makes me think the UK needs to step its game up! :)
